Overview

As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away. Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete. Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself. Open daily from 10.00am except 24th, 25th & 26th December

While this ship is still worth going to see, it's not ready for a dedicated trip. Unlike the Victory the ship has no guided tour or clear path to follow. You are simply given a map and sent on your way to explore. A lot...More

Another historic ship you can board and have a good walk about. Plenty of room, good displays and helpful curators.

The image you see at this attraction takes you back in time. Feels like its a vintage port frozen in time

Not as informative as the tour of Victory but an excellent well preserved ship to visit. Amazing engineering.

Again, like HMS Victory the ship is laden with interest and history. It would have been some sight sailing the oceans.

I know the gates of the dockyard close about 5 pm ish and I'm sure like most it will open at 10am. As a rule I always go with open from 10:30 and last tours are at 4pm in summer months. It has always worked for me
